Country Stars are Racing to Daytona Beach, Florida
Country stars are racing to Daytona Beach, Florida this weekend for the 53rd Annual Daytona 500. Martina McBride will perform the National Anthem for NASCAR’s famed season opener, with Brad Paisley taking the stage for a three-song, pre-race concert event. The stars are also picking their favorite drivers, and Kix Brooks isn’t afraid to name names. Kix said “I like Jimmie Johnson. I like Tony Stewart just ’cause he makes everybody mad. At least you get some kind of color on TV. Somebody’s not afraid to go call somebody a whatever, you know, and get a little stirred up out there.” Fans can catch Martina and Brad performing when coverage of the Daytona 500 begins airing at noon this Sunday on Fox.
